Melbourne: Speedster Brett Lee plans to record and release his first studio album in India during breaks in his playing schedule over the next 12 months and is also looking forward to charity work and movie offers in the country in future.
Lee has returned to India with the Australian one-day side for a seven-match series and, to his amazement, the game’s popularity has only grown in the country.
“This has probably been the series with the most interest since I’ve been coming here,” Lee said adding “I’ve been on a few tours now with the Australian side, and it’s always been massive, but the last couple of weeks have been huge.
“I think the Twenty20 has had a lot to do with it, which is great for world cricket and great for India. This is where cricket is, this is the home of cricket. There would have been a couple of thousand people waiting for us at the hotel,” he told ‘The Age´ newspaper.
Following the success of his debut single with Asha Bhosle last year, Lee will record and release his first studio album in India during breaks in his cricketing schedule.
